4 Reasons Why Summer is the Perfect Time to Start Swim Lessons

Really, any time is a great time to start swim lessons, but summer is easily the perfect time to sign up at Goldfish Swim School. Why? Here are 4 Reasons Why Summer is the Perfect Time to Start Swim Lessons:

1. Summer = swimming

The sun is shining, the temperature is rising and the days are long. So, what do kids naturally want to do to stay busy, have fun and beat the heat? SWIM! Most kids are drawn to the water — especially if other kids are already there! Follow up on that desire to play in the water and sign up the kids for swimming lessons. Not only will your children gain important benefits from swimming, but they’ll also learn the 5 things every kid should know how to do in the water. That’s certainly something to celebrate, don’t you think?

2. Meet new kids and parents!

New to the neighborhood? It can be hard to meet families with children who are the same age as (or have similar interests) as yours. When you sign up for swimming lessons at the neighborhood Goldfish Swim School, you’ll have the opportunity to meet kids and their parents. Playdates for the kids — AND the parents — may be in your future!

3. Beat the “I’m bored” groans

It happens. As much as you try to create interesting crafts from Pinterest, send the kids outside or let them play video games so their days are filled with a variety of things to do, you’ll still hear it: “I’m bored!” The horrors! Well, we know how you can help keep those groans at bay: Take the kids to swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School! There are classes available for all skill levels, ages 4 months and older (so if you have kids of all ages, and a baby, they can all take lessons at the same time in a different class level). Win-win!

4. Learn water safety

Water safety is so important that Goldfish Swim School teaches it during every single lesson, plus we have a Water Safety Awareness Week several times a year! During summer, you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, quite often close to some water — whether that’s at a pool or the beach. Even if your kids already know how to “swim” (that is, hang out in the water), they’ll still benefit from having proper swim lessons because they’ll learn water safety skills that will help keep them safer all summer.
